Hello, my name is Ashley Duarte!  Art has always been my passion and I am so glad to get to share it with these amazing kids. 
I graduated from Mason HS in 2006 and then from Angelo State University in 2010.  I am married to Ray Duarte Jr. and we have 2 children. Paisley, who is 6, and Paxton, who is 3.  I am thrilled to be the Art teacher for Mason Elementary and Junior High! I started in February 2018 and am excited to see what the future years have in store.  I hope to not only teach my students how to create art, but to learn the history of infamous artists as well! If you hear your child yelling, “when I say Mona, you say Lisa!” at home, I apologize, but keep in mind, they are learning their artist! 
I will strive to make art an outlet for our children and to keep the atmosphere as fun as possible for them.   I look forward to the years to come and am so proud to be teaching at Mason ISD.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at, I would love to hear from you! 
Go Punchers and Cowgirls!
